A waiter asked, “Sir, would you like your pizza cut into four pieces or eight?” “Oh just four.” He replied, “I could never eat eight pieces.”
That customer failed to understand the basic mathematical function of division. But division can be a handy thing to know if you are to make the best of your time. Most big projects, like reading a book for a school assignment are overwhelming when we look at the size of the project. But when we divide it into smaller units, of say a chapter a day, it suddenly seems quite manageable.
Bible reading falls into this category. Reading a collection of 66 books seems beyond our capability, until we realize that’s only about 3 chapters a day for a year. If you’ve never read the Bible cover to cover, visit our website where you can find a free daily Bible reading chart. Dividing this task in to a lot of smaller bites, makes it more likely you’ll stick with it and redeem the time.
